The famous "urea moisturizer" created by f.c. himself! This product underwent several dozen formulations before its current iteration.
Its star ingredient is urea, a molecule found in the skin's natural moisturizing factor (NMF) that plays an integral role in improving skin barrier function.
Urea is a multi-functional ingredient with the ability to hydrate and mildly exfoliate. It's so effective as a hydrator, in fact, that it outperforms vaseline in some studies. (1)

Other key features!
- Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: enhances skin's softness and hydration while providing a silky, non-greasy feel. Our Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is meticulously sourced and contains no trace amount of C12-24 fatty acids, enhancing its microbial potency against Malassezia, a microorganism linked to acne and "fungal acne." (2)
- Hyaluronic acid: a moisture-binding powerhouse that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, delivering unparalleled hydration. By forming a protective barrier, it maintains optimal moisture levels and supports natural wound healing. This makes it a multi-benefit ingredient that enhances skin plumpness, radiance, and overall health, and is suitable for all skin types.
- Glycerin: a natural humectant, known for its ability to attract and lock in moisture, keeping skin soft and supple. It works synergistically with urea to create a "skin-smoothing" effect and boost hydration. (3)
- Allantoin: has soothing properties, stabilizes urea, and promotes skin softness and healing. Recognized for its ability to form a protective barrier, aid in retaining moisture, and help alleviate minor irritations. Gentle and nurturing for the skin.
- Dimethicone: creates a breathable protective barrier on the skin, locking in moisture and enhancing moisturization without a greasy feel. Our dimethicone was carefully crafted to offer smooth texture and stability for a luxurious and comfortable experience.
has really improved my skin texture and acne. I have very sensitive skin and have had immense difficulty in finding a moisturizer that both works and won't irritate/cause any breakouts. I love love love this moisturizer
Love this product. Goes on light and can be layered for extra protection. I use it on my chest as well as that's an FA zone for me. Grateful this product exists!
I have purchased this consistently since it first launched and am still obsessed! It’s been a staple for me and the only complaint I have is that I wish they had a monthly subscription option so I never run out 😭💗✨
I have had SUCH a terrible and long journey with fungal acne. This began happening to me as an adult. I had never as issues with acne and was at a loss. I googled so much. I tried everything. The only think besides actual Yeast Infection medication that helped keep this at bay is this product. The effects were so quick. I won’t buy any other product. This has been such a relief. THANK YOU!
After trying every acne treatment out there, I have to say this is the holy grail. Everything I have been looking for. I sa results within the first month of using this product. I highly recommend it.
unfortunately this made my skin red and flushed and eventually it stung. I also got bumpy skin and broke out in two cystic spots. all of this went away once I stopped using it. I really appreciate the brand though, and hope they will come out with a soothing, gentle moisturiser without any urea, glycerin, and silicones or other actives
Caused white pustules and some whiteheads after using twice, sad this didn’t work for me was very hopeful
The most amazing moisturiser I’ve ever used absolutely in love with it and can’t live without it.
Purchased my first tube about 6 months ago and now on my 4th order it’s honestly changed my skin it’s so soft and dewy and has cleared all my tiny bumps that I had. I go makeup free now and absolutely love how my skin look thanks to this product and the bp cream is also a game changer when I get those monthly hormonal breakouts I use this in any pimples I see coming and it makes them disappear so fast! I love these products and can’t wait to start using the cleansers
I am 66 years old, and have had oily skin and acne since age 13. In the last couple of years I developed seborrheic dermatitis on my face. This is the ONLY moisturizer that does not cause any issues for me. It goes on very smoothly and absorbs quickly with no greasy sheen on my skin. No acne, and the dry scaly seborrheic dermatitis is also gone. The only knock on it is that I wish it came in a bigger size tube! I am truly grateful for your products and can’t wait for the new cleanser and balm to be available. Please continue your great work and dedication to these stubborn skin issues.
